De Akker Pub is one of those places that when you find it, you find yourselve all over again. Well amongst old and new friends, this is one waterhole that has never run dry! In the day it serves lunches, (best homemade hamburger ever)and early diners with a busy student trade in the evening. It is situated in one of the most picturesque oldest streets in Stellenbosch - Dorp street, paved with many oak trees and side water canals (drivers be aware). It is legendary with many, mostly past students who all come back to visit ..maybe Jose & Deidre (owners) should put a visitors book for all to sign & remember. I am back later this year & i cannot wait! MPJ

If you want to unwind after a long hot walk, and feel part of the local vibe, look no further. Simple fare, well cooked and easy on the wallet. One of the oldest pubs in South Africa, and with reason.

This is a wonderful pub. Be warned Stellenbosch is a student town and this is where the seniors go for a night out.
Great place to have a beer or two with friends. Cosy inside and seating outside. Come early as everyone grabs the outside seating.
I enjoy their pub menu. Great value for money.
Bar service for drinks and food. I have had drinks served to the table however...

This historic pub also serves food which I haven't tried yet but the atmosphere for a few drinks is good. There is a smell of stale cigarette smoke which I hate so I will not be going often. Try it as you can meet some interesting people there.
